Technically, area affect is a 'power' boost. Your GM may not let you apply it to an aptitude. How do you use 'athleticism' as an area effect. When you dodge, does everyone around you dodge as well? Or is this just for throwing?

Is the 'delayed use' for superspeed the time it takes you to get up to speed while spinning. If so, you might want to limit the other powers to your superspeed instead of just 'spinning'. Also, if you do this, you will not be able to use superspeed to defend (per the description of the limitation).

Yes I saw the Area just for throwing

mmmmm - will have to think the super speed thing but the idea was that he had to get up to speed before the power kicked in but it does seem a little restricting not being able to use the power to defend

While it never states you can take Boosts with Aptitudes, it makes thematic sense to allow it in cases such as Spinbearing's (or when used with Shooting or Fighting). Plus Aptitudes can take Complications, so it only makes sense.

Like DP mentioned, it's ultimately between you and your Judge to decide; if it helps sway him/her, it will explicitely state that Aptitudes may take Boosts, Complications, and Balanced Complications in the revised edition.

I think Delayed Use is poorly worded and doesn't take into account a situation such as Spinbearing's. As I see it he would not be able to use the power (nor associated powers) during the first round as he "spins up". After that all powers may be used for attacks/defense/whatever until such time that the character stops spinning.

Once again, check with your Judge, but it's not a stretch to justify how your character is built/works in game.
